In celebration of the GS3 Emzoom subcompact crossover’s milestone  of  1,500  units  sold  right  before  its  launch anniversary, GAC Motor  Philippines,  an Astara  company,  organized  a special  social  drive  event  for Emzoom owners, from different GAC dealerships in Luzon to Pampanga.

Nearly a hundred GAC Emzoom vehicles set off from various assembly points across Metro  Manila,  South  Luzon  and  North Luzon, including  GAC  Motor  dealership locations  like Alabang,  Lipa,  Kawit,  Bacoor,  Santa Rosa,  Manila  Bay,  New Manila, Congressional  Avenue,   Fairview,   Pasig,   Marilao,   Pampanga,   and  Tarlac,   and converged at Petron Station KM23  along NLEX-northbound. From there, the convoy proceeded to Fabrika Villas in Guagua, Pampanga, where a luncheon featuring a program and games awaited the participants.

GAC MOTOR Philippines is celebrating a significant milestone, having sold over 1,500 GS3  Emzoom units  in  the country by the eve of  its anniversary  launch  on June 30, 2023. The brand concluded May 2024 with retail sales of 320 units, of which 215 were Emzooms, bringing the total to 1,569 Emzoom vehicles sold since its Philippine debut at the end of June last year.

“To have a big group of Emzoom owners coming together to show their support and enthusiasm for  their cars is a spectacle that never ceases to amaze our team at GAC MOTOR  Philippines.  Hand in  hand with  all  Filipinos,  we will  forge  on to bring transformative  mobility options to every corner of  the country. Here’s to the next thousands  more GAC  Motor cars  conquering  Philippine  roads,”  Franz  Decloedt, Brand Head of GAC Motor Philippines, Astara Philippines, stated.

Several  participants  also  shared their  positive  experiences  about the gathering and their own GS3 Emzoom vehicles.

“We’re  gathered today to celebrate  our new friendships  and ignite a passion about our favorite  Emzoom.  We get to appreciate  the beauty  and reliability  of  our trusty and agile subcompact crossover with each other, and surely there will be more of us at these drive  events  soon.  Buckle up, let’s hit the road and turn every drive into an adventure. We will Emzoom on,” stated Patrick Licup, President of the GAC Emzoom Club PH. Other Emzoom owners proudly shared their stories:

“It all happened so fast, we just saw it at the mall, and immediately fell in love with it. And  then in  two weeks’ time, our family got our hands on our own car. Now, I am a proud and happy Emzoom owner,” Kristian Lugtu said.

Another customer, Jay Vincent Serial chimed in and said, “We were looking for a new crossover for  our family’s  use.  At  the Emzoom’s price  point  and the top features  it offers, the competition was not even close.”

The  EMZOOM is a price-competitive subcompact crossover outfitted with a 1.5 TGDI engine,  complemented  with  a  7-speed wet  dual  clutch  transmission  (7WDCT), producing 174 horsepower and 270 Nm of torque.
